A Name Etched in Time
LITTLE BIG HORN BATTLEFIELD NATIONAL MONUMENT, MONTANA - This National Monument memorializes the epic encounter between the U.S. Army's 7th Cavalry, led by Lt. Col. George Custer, and the Lakota and Cheyenne warriors on June 25-26, 1876. Here, we are looking down from the 7th Cavalry Monument on top of Last Stand Hill, a.k.a. "Custer's Last Stand" toward the visitor's center and Custer National Cemetery. On the other side of the hill is the Indian Memorial, honoring all of the tribes defending their way of life at the Battle. Other things to see and do include walking the 1/4 mile Deep Ravine trail, driving a self-guided, cell phone audio tour of the 4.5 mile tour road to the Reno-Benteen Battlefield site - where 355 cavalry men survived the Battle of the Little Bighorn, and watching the orientation video.
